Calm, transparent morning
With crystalline sounds
Of subterranean murmurs
And silent reflections.

Submerged in this light
The earth becomes moist
And the waters rise into the sky
To become clouds
Returning to their origin

In the same way I go up to the stars
Come down and immerse myself
In the depths of my soul

When I go up I bring with me
the sweet earth from which I came
When I go down, I carry on my brow
The bright sounds and colors
from the heights I reached.

Santiago Chile, February 2005


This book is their most recent collaboration, Fernando as a poet, Rafael as a draftsman, with a production that has been giving informally for the last 21 years or so. Each one in their own field, and in this book they have gathered their “notes” on different topics in relation to the internal experience and in two separate media. Both artists draw their inspiration from the experience contained in “Silo’s message”, a spiritual path based in the search for meaning in life, overcoming suffering and finding transcendence in the depths of the mind. This book is an account of that experience.
